    Comments and feedback pls,

    I'm maintaining the same colour, although its a proper paint job, not just mere touch up, interior is re upholstered with pure 100% Italian Black Leather, additional Alpina Lip Spoiler, specially imported custom M6 side mirror for E38 and a completely refurbishing my 19" due to careless parking and major pot holes issues with roads in KL & PJ.

    Will be sending the bill to DBKL & MBPJ to split the bill for the repair work on my rims, hehehehe..

    Guys, i would appreciate your comments and feed back....

    Yup, agreed. Tried the M3 & M5, but some how the M6 seems to fit the car better then the rest. Yes, it has memory function & LED Floor light underneath the side mirror. It cost me RM 1800 including installation and 3 weeks to collect as its a custom order for E38 was made in Taiwan...

    Bro, appreciate you coming along with me today...Its ok bro, i beg to decline your generous offer of racuns..
    Bloody damaging to the wallet already. Seriously, like i said earlier today, these work are all uncalled for. My paint and interior are still in perfect condition..Dont know what got into me to do these things and now worry and suffer minor anger at the painter for removing certain things that would actually make the car look better after painting..

    I think its just the worry that i might be over budget and what if something goes wrong syndrome..I actually went back to the painter immediately after you drop me off. To my suprise, the painter told me that the car will be ready for its primer and undercoat tomorrow morning, and probably be ready for paint on saturday.

    Looks like i might be able to collect my car earlier then expected.. I've informed the interior guys already that the car will be ready for its new skin on wednesday...

    Thanks again bro, for lunch and all.....
